“Marble halls of Oregon”

Deep within the Siskiyou Mountains are dark, twisting passages that await your discovery. Eons of acidic water seeping into marble rock created and decorated the wondrous âMarble Halls of Oregon.â Join a tour, get a taste of what caving is all about, and explore a mountain from the inside and out!

Tours through the Oregon Caves are seasonal and offered from late March through the end of November. The Monument is located at an elevation of 4,000 feet on the wooded slopes of the Siskiyou Mountains, part of the coastal mountain range of Oregon and California. When you visit, expect comfortable summer temperatures, snowy winters, and rain during spring and fall. The surrounding region offer unique geology and botany, wild and scenic rivers, wilderness areas, and historic features.    Prepare for the Cave Tour The cave temperature is a constant 41 degrees F (5 degrees C), so warm clothing is recommended. Wear good walking shoes, as the trail surface is uneven and slippery. Per the NPS, no flash lights should be brought on the tours. Cameras are ok. No tripods are allowed in the cave. 
Children on Cave Tours Children must be at least 42 inches tall and be able to climb a set of test stairs unassisted to go on the basic tour of the cave. Children may not be carried by any means through the cave, and child care services are not available at the monument. Ask about special tours for small children. Tours are 5-10 minutes long and are free for all members of the family. A parent or guardian must accompany the child at all times.

So much fun! The caves were spectacular. It is so cool to see what the earth looks like from the inside. The history of the site was cool too. The rangers did tell us that the candlelight tour was pretty neat. Expect long waits for a tour on the weekend. We waited 2+ hours for our tour however a party of 65 surprised the staff that morning making for long tour waits. Kids 7 and 10 enjoyed their time underground. Make sure to participate in the Junior Ranger program!

For the entire month of October, Oregon Caves will be hosting the Haunted Candlelight tour that takes guests on a spooky adventure throughout the dark and spider-infested underground tunnels. Each group will be given a designated tour guide to creep them out with tales of local hauntings, and ghost stories about the cave itself.

Very friendly and welcoming staff. Incredible adventure through the caves and time. The hotel is majestic and the cafe is a must stop for a nice treat. I recommend the shakes!
